hi
most cars have specific subframes /mounting points for arbs if you dont have one unless you can find a purpose made adapter kit if one even exists for your model car it will be very difficult if not impossible to fit an arb were there never was one ,
even if you just uprate the front it will have amazing results
a lot of cars dont respond well to heavy rear arbs as they tend to lift the rear inside wheel in a corner which gives less grip and results in lift off oversteer and unless you have mastered that you can get very out of shape.

welding mouting points onto the subframe wouldnt be difficult, so maby if i got the rear hub assmebly bits 4 the vti, i could fit the rear discs and anti role bar.... what do you recon?

strut bars add rigidity
anti-roll bars stop wheels from going up and down as fast, in relation to the other axle.

therefore uprated anti-roll bars will be better on their own.
combined with a good geometry and quality springs and damper settings you can make some great handling cars!

a lot of race series cars eg. touring cars remove the arbs in the wet due to the inside rear wheel lift problem, also to stiff an arb on the road mainly rough roads transfer the bumping from one side to the other causing the car to wobble around more
the anti roll bar does exactly what it say STUG mate it doesnt slow the wheel down from going up and down thats the dampers job
all they do is transfer pressure through the bar to the other wheel to try and make the 2 wheels make the same movement but still have some independance from each other
if you go to dull with the size of a rear anti roll bar on front wheel drive cars especially its not good
and thats first hand experiance my last car i went from a 22mm arb to an 18mm as it didnt behave as well in the real world with the heavier sprung bar on it.

it doesnt affect speed of the wheel. dont know where i was going there! i can picture exactly how an arb works in my head!

i would like to uprate my arb but i also want to get coilovers to reduce body roll. im thinking that the coilovers are going to do a better job than just obtaining an uprated arb. i can just set the damping to a faster rate for a bit more comfort!
